I'm really picky about boots and I'm happy with these. I was looking for a well-made, comfortable, waterproof and versatile boot to use for on and off-trail day hikes and short backpacks. I've been out on several mushroom forays and hikes and these boots fit the bill. They are not ultralights -- which is great for me since we do our fair share of scrambling off trail in the Cascades and Olympic Mountains. The soles are stiff enough to give support off trail but flexible enough to be comfortable out of the box. The sizing is just about perfect -- remember that UK sizes are listed. I ordered the 5.5s and they fit my US8 perfectly. They might be a bit wide for some, but I like to wear thick socks and orthotics so for me, a little width is a good thing.
